I am a Staff Scientist working with Ronald M. Summers at Clinical Center, National Institutes of Health. I work on the intersection of computer vision, medical image analysis, bioinformatics and machine learning with the goal of developing machine learning tools for solving real-world problems. I will join the Computer Science and Engineering Department, University of Texas at Arlington as an assistant professor in Fall 2020.

I did a postdoc at Cornell University working with Mert Sabuncu and postdoc in UNC Chapel Hill working with Guorong Wu. I obtained my Ph.D. from University of Queensland, Australia under the supervision of Simon Lucey (currently research associate professor in CMU, Pittsburgh, USA). I received my B.S. from Sichuan University and M. S. from University of Electronic Science and Technology of China.
